Original release date: February 01, 2018

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has released an article addressing scams targeting online daters. In this type of fraud, cyber criminals target victims, gain their confidence, and trick them into sending money.

To stay safer online, review the FTC article on Online Dating Scams and the NCCIC/US-CERT tip on Staying Safe on Social Networking Sites. If you think you have been a victim of an online dating scam, report your experience to

“I work for Ford. Wait I’m in the Army”

Well which is it?  Yes this is today’s story.  As soon as he messaged me I went on facebook and found him.  Well not him but the person’s who’s identity he was borrowing.  I did send the real guy a message to let him about the Instagram dude.

I took a picture from the facebook page and sent it to him.  I didn’t get a response about it right away not until I asked.  That’s when the lying really kicks in.

And now for your viewing pleasure, please meet Geoffrey the Jerk.

Stargatelady Swag

 

When I started this blog it was to tell my crazy stories, so I created a card I could hand out and pass around etc.  Then I thought I could do pens.  Then bumper stickers and then I did a hat.   Then I created notepads.

I wear the hat when I don’t want to do my hair or if I am going somewhere to plug my blog I wear it.  Sometimes I wear it just for fun.  This is my old logo from when I used blogspot.  I plan to do a new one with my new colors.

The bumper sticker is also from the old blog and I will be creating a new one.

The pens and cards I hand out everywhere.  A waitress told me they love pens so I always leave a pen card when I pay the bill.

I recently got a Cricut machine because I wanted to make a t-shirt for me to wear.  Well I found this jacket at Walmart and thought I’d put my logo on the back and on the front.  I wear it everywhere.

The picture of everything is below.

If you want a FREE bumper sticker, a pen or a notepad I will be happy to mail them to you at no cost to you.  I just want to get the word out and remind everyone NOT to fall for these scammers.

Just email me your address and I will be happy to send them out to you.  My way of thanking you for reading my blog and following me.  I truly appreciate it.

A Stargatelady Quickie!

Yes it was quick.  A Stargatelady Quickie is when I don’t pretend to carry on the conversation.  First question out of the gate is to ask for the picture.  And that’s I did.

Then a few days ago I got a hello from a guy and I did the Stargatelady Quickie.  He blocked me right away.  I am having way too much fun!!

REMEMBER:  NEVER SEND MONEY TO SOMEONE YOU DON’T KNOW!!
